New Delhi, Jul 9 (UNI) The BJP today said withdrawal of support to the ruling UPA coalition by the Left parties was late by at least one year and they will have to explain to the nation what prevented them from withdrawing their support in mid-2007 itself.
BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said all the reasons listed by CPI(M) chief Prakash Karat like the imposition of the dubious Indo-US Nuclear deal on the country and the UPA government disregarding the parliamentary debate were all the reasons that were valid in mid-2007 itself. ''The BJP would like to ask why did the Left wait one long year?'' he asked.
He said obvious reasons for the delay was that the Left was waiting for the Samajwadi Party to cosy up to the Congress to extend its support to the UPA government. "The Left's action was always under suspicion," the BJP leader remarked.
Mr Rudy said the UPA's handling of prices, inflation, farmers and youth problems was never good, and the BJP felt that the tenure and credibility of the government has finally come to an end.
Asked if the saffron party would move a no-confidence motion, Mr Rudy said, ''We have to see who bells the cat.'' UNI MCN PY UCS1703
